Biography

Belton, Texas, United States (2000 – present)

Flyleaf is an American band, formed in Belton, Texas, United States in 2000. They originated as a band called Listen, and then changed name to Passerby, but due to an existing band owning the rights to that name, their name was changed to Flyleaf after they were signed to their record label. “A flyleaf is the blank page at the front of a book,” explains Lacey Mosley, Flyleaf’s vocalist. “It’s the dedication page, the place you write a message to someone you’re giving a book to. And, that’s kind of what our songs are — personal messages that provide a few moments of clarity before the story begins”.

Their music is a mix of styles. The band cites influences such as Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters, Incubus, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Nirvana.

Early on, vocalist Lacey Mosley began playing music with drummer James Culpepper. Later on guitarists Jared Hartmann and Sameer Bhattacharya were recruited. “Sameer and Jared are really experimental with melodies and pedals, and we all had different influences that were all blending together with the same passionate and hopeful heart, and that brought out this beautiful feeling. It was magical,” said Mosley. When they were still playing as Listen, they played with bassists Josh C. and Jonathan B.. The bassist was replaced by Kirkpatrick Seals in 2002 after he left his previous band The Grove.

All five members of the band are of the Christian faith. This faith in Jesus influences their music, but lead singer Lacey Mosley doesn’t necessarily believe that makes Flyleaf a strictly Christian band. “We all share the same faith. And so when we deal with the whole ‘Christian band thing,’ we kind of think about something P.

    Between the Stars is Awesome! Wouldn't have thought that Kristen is that Good! She's clearly not Lacey but isn't that far away I think!

    Everyone talks about Lacey, but nobody talks about Flyleaf's AWESOME bassist, Kirkpatrick Seals. That man can make a thick groove, he almost singlehandedly pushes them into alternative metal territory at times!

    новая вокалистка ниче так, но это уже не те Flyleaf, которые западают в душу и в чьей музыке ты расстворяешься. Новые флайлиф хороши, но далеко не настолько как с Лейси. Ничего особенно

    I never noticed, until this day, that Bec Hollcraft is also singing on „Platonic“... I had to listen again and she is just doing the background vocals right?

    i don't like the new stuff but the new album is ok and it's the fact that kristen has a really good voice. still prefer the old stuff and wish lacey didn't leave the band but life is life and things happen
